07:31 AM ET 09.04 | Matt Niskanen knows all he needs to know about the numbers in Pittsburgh. More important, he understands what they might mean for his future with the Penguins. He's aware that the Penguins, who will open training camp next Wednesday, are roughly $1.1 million over the NHL's salary-cap ceiling of $64.3 million for the 2013-14 season. ... It's no surprise, then, that Niskanen has been a fixture in trade speculation since the Penguins signed free-agent defenseman Rob Scuderi two months ago. "I know the situation we're in, being over the cap," Niskanen said after an informal workout Monday at the Ice Castle in Castle Shannon. "It's pretty evident that Ray [Shero, the general manager] has to make a decision. Someone who probably otherwise is a regular on our roster [will be traded]."

Good morning Spiny. I'm starting to get anxious about hockey season beginning again. Not expecting much from the Caps (again) this year. But, between them, Hershey and Lake Erie up here it promises to be a good year! I never get too disappointed. Even bad hockey is better than almost anything else.

What's with the 'someone' talk. Everyone knows it's Niskanen. So why doesn't he just say I'm not here for long.
